Subject [jira] [Created] (DRILL-1257) Handle schema mutations within a batch
Date Tue, 05 Aug 2014 22:51:14 GMT
Jason Altekruse created DRILL-1257:

             Summary: Handle schema mutations within a batch
                 Key: DRILL-1257
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DRILL-1257
             Project: Apache Drill
          Issue Type: New Feature
            Reporter: Jason Altekruse
             Fix For: Future

Drill is intended to provide flexibility for a wide variety of querying use cases, including
those against file formats with changing schema such as JSON. Currently Drill does not have
an efficient means of representing these cases, as a constant schema is tied to a record batch,
which is best used to represent a few hundred or thousand records. We have have also not designed
all of the operators and functions to gracefully handle changes in schema throughout the course
of a query.
